2009 DC & US Territories Quarter Silver Proof Set
The 2009 District of Columbia & U.S. Territories Quarters Silver Proof Set will go on sale at the US Mint on Monday, March 23, 2009 at 12:00 Noon ET.
The set will contain 90% silver versions of the six quarters issued during 2009 to honor Washington DC and the five United States Territories. In prior years the US Mint had issued similar sets featuring each year's State Quarters.
The following quarters will be included:
2009-S District of Columbia Quarter
2009-S Puerto Rico Quarter
2009-S Guam Quarter
2009-S American Samoa Quarter
2009-S US Virgin Islands Quarter
2009-S Northern Mariana Islands Quarter
Each set will be priced at $29.95 each. This represents an increase over the price of the similar sets issued in prior years. The 2008 State Quarters Silver Proof Set (still available at the time of writing this post) is priced at $25.95. The $4 increase is likely due to fact that the 2009 set contains six coins instead of the usual five.
You can view the US Mint's product page for the 2009 DC & US Territories Silver Proof Set here, although ordering options won't be available until next week.
